    Copper anti seize grease as thermal paste?

    I've used PermaTex Silver anti seize for over 10 years off and on, usually for just a few weeks at a time. It's about same as TG4 ect. Although it is fairly good at keeping temp in check, wasn't really a big deal. Good for an "in between" usage when out of real TIM

    How to get the best audio from a desktop pc?

    That depends on If the spec's of "Onboard" is as good as an "add on" card Some {Most} motherboard's have Amazing Audio onboard, even older m/b's But you don't really want any extra stuff that changes the "original" recording ie... SRS, that is more of "gimmick" to the sound for Music But...

    my audiophile system.
